Lowest of the Lowest corporates: WALMART sues its own employee for her medical money!

This is the lowest any employer can possibly get to!  And who do you expect but WALMART!  Walmart is the lowest of the lowest in human principles… it just looks at its profits.  PERIOD!  This one company is so much responsible for totally upstaging US with China as the major economy that the coming generation will wonder why didn’t anyone ever question this company?  Just as East India Company was so directly responsible for colonization of India, Walmart will get that honor for destroying the US economy in the final analysis.

Just read this story carefully:

A collision with a semi-trailer truck seven years ago left 52-year-old Deborah Shank permanently brain-damaged and in a wheelchair. Her husband, Jim, and three sons found a small source of solace: a $700,000 accident settlement from the trucking company involved. After legal fees and other expenses, the remaining $417,000 was put in a special trust. It was to be used for Mrs. Shank’s care.
Instead, all of it is now slated to go to Mrs. Shank’s former employer, Wal-Mart Stores Inc.
Two years ago, the retail giant’s health plan sued the Shanks for the $470,000 it had spent on her medical care. A federal judge ruled last year in Wal-Mart’s favor, backed by an appeals-court decision in August. Now, her family has to rely on Medicaid and Mrs. Shank’s social-security payments to keep up her round-the-clock care.
